Program Performance Information

Performance Measures

This section presents selected program performance information, including, for example, GPRA goals, objectives, measures, and performance targets and data, and an assessment of the progress made toward achieving program results. Achievement of program results is based on the cumulative effect of the resources provided in previous years and those requested in FY 2013 and future years, and the resources and efforts invested by those served by this program.

Physical Education Program

As part of a multi-agency effort to improve the effectiveness of programs supporting child health and fitness, the Department reviewed the performance measures for this program. The Department published revised performance measures in the Notice Inviting Applications for fiscal year 2010. These measures are: (1) the percentage of students served by the grant who engage in at least 60 minutes of daily physical activity; (2) the percentage of students served by the grant who achieve age-appropriate cardiovascular fitness levels; (3) the percentage of students served by the grant who consume fruit two or more times per day and vegetables three or more times per day; and (4) the cost (based on the amount of the grant award) per student who achieves the level of physical activity required to meet the physical activity measures above (percentage of students who engage in 60 minutes of daily physical activity). Baseline and year 1 data for these measures will be available for the 2010 cohort in spring 2012. Existing grantees from cohorts first funded prior to fiscal year 2010 still report on the previous performance measures shown on the tables that follow. The Department adopted these standards based on input from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Goal: To promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles for students.

Objective: Support the implementation of effective physical education programs and strategies.

Measure: The percentage of elementary students served by the grant who engage in 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity per week.

Additional information: Grantees from the 2007 and 2008 cohorts reported an increase in student physical activity at both the elementary and secondary levels in their second project year. The 2007 cohort does not yet have 2010 data because many of grantees received a 1-year, no-cost extension to complete the implementation of their projects. The data from the baseline and year 1 data of the 2009 cohort also show an increase in student physical activity at the elementary and secondary levels.

The measures will have only three data points for each of the 2006, 2007, and 2008 cohorts, corresponding with the end of each project year. Beginning with the 2009 cohort, grantees are conducting an additional data collection at the start of the grant in order to establish a baseline that more accurately reflects the participants’ initial activity levels. However, this will still only result in two targets because both the baseline and year one data are reported at the end of year one. The Department will have baseline and year 1 data for the 2010 cohort in spring 2012. Therefore, as there are no data yet available for the 2010 cohort, no targets exist for 2013.

Efficiency Measure

The Department developed and is implementing the following efficiency measure (which includes both Federal and the mandatory non-federal expenditures).

Measure: The cost per student who achieves the level of physical activity required to meet the physical activity measures for the program (150 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity for elementary students and 225 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity for middle and high school students).

Additional information: The efficiency measure for the program is the cost per successful outcome, as measured by the outcome measures above. The 2007 cohort showed an improvement in its second year of reporting. However, the 2008 cohort showed an increase in the cost per successful outcome in the second year. Unlike the measures above, there is no baseline for the 2009 cohort because cost per successful outcome is not meaningful at the start of the grant period. The Department will have data for 2011, including the 2010 cohort, in spring 2012.


Individual Grantee Results

Data in the spreadsheets posted below is for Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) measures established for the Carol M. White Physical Education program (PEP) grantees that received new grant awards in fiscal years 2006 and 2007. Information for these spreadsheets was taken from each grantee's annual performance report. Data is posted for the first and second annual performance reports for the 2006 grant cohort, and for the first annual performance report for the 2007 grant cohort.
